Welcome to Gateway Church where we believe Christianity is an active faith, not a passive religion. Following Jesus is adventurous and, when lived out, makes a positive difference to the world! We're excited to see where this adventure could take you. Here are a few ways to get started...

Exploring Christianity

We regularly run courses for people who are interested in finding out more about what it means to be a Christian.

Life Explored
As part of our School of Life events in June and July we are taking 7 weeks to discuss some of life's biggest questions. Come along to explore the Christian faith, ask anything you want and share your point of view.

Sign up to come along to the first one, but there's no pressure to come back the following weeks if you'd prefer not to...

Our next Alpha course begins in September. We want everyone to be able to explore the Christian faith and Alpha has proven to be a really helpful place to share views, ask questions and discover more.

Sign up coming soon!

Upcoming Events

School of Life

Gateway School of life is 7 weeks to engage the body, mind and spirit taking place from the 7th of June for four weeks at our Alder Rd Site. We've got loads going on, you're sure to find something that takes your interest! Each evening will start at 7:30pm with coffee and cake, before everyone goes to their chosen session, the evenings will finish at 9:15pm.


On a Sunday you can find us in Poole at both 129 Alder Road and 502 Ashley Road. Our meetings are relaxed and informal. We want to make it as easy as possible for people to pursue a relationship with God, so we use everyday language and don't expect you to arrive with lots of experience in going along to church meetings.

Every Sunday we serve tea and coffee as you arrive before we spend some time singing worship to God and giving time for a talk that applies the message of the Bible to life today. We hope you feel very welcome and comfortable and we invite you to stay at the end of the meeting for more tea and coffee, and chat.

On the first Sunday of each month we invite friends from all over the country to come and speak to us about their experience of encountering Jesus in their lives. These are really great Sundays to come if you are interested in discovering more about the Christian faith.
